original engine is from 2008. It is upgrading to the 2013 engine, a 5 year difference. Next year, the 2013 engine will be 5 years old. By the time they finally upgrade, the new engine will be as old as the original engine when it was time to upgrade. How does it take 5 years to copy/paste code? They ARE still working on it, right?

 

Engine Upgrade

The engine update is proceeding along at a brisk pace, with no significant delays being introduced. Thus, it is still on track to be completed early next year.

I think there's just a LITTLE MORE to it than copy and paste.

Just be patient and keep playing. Thats what the ***gots still say especially the dude that only has a chest as profile picture. They should have  just make the game again from scrap tbh and use the old textures of APB.

At this point a game company could reproduce a game from scratch with the same concept as APB..

I don't think they would want to adopt a challenging community like us lol. They don't need programmers, they would need disability support workers.

They are planning to release the PS4 version of APB before getting the Engine Upgrade over to the PC version.

 

All we can do is just to be patient.

Well that's not essentially a bad thing, we will have a good reason to stick around more and wait for yet another engine upgrade and complain on forums.

That's actually true, so they will get ready for the new engine overhaul in 2018 till 2023. Meanwhile I hope the community keeps spending money on Armas Marketplace, it's worth!

How does it take 5 years to copy/paste code?

 

As a coder myself I can confirm that copy-pasting code from an old architecture to a new one actually introduces more bugs than if you had just rewritten everything yourself. Which is probably what the very small dev team is actually doing.

Not to mention that this game is ALOT more complicated then people seem to think.

Has anyone ever played ARK: Survival Evolved? During character creation in that game, one can move sliders, similar to APB, and change the width and height of many body parts. However, one thing that APB doesn't do is cause odd distortion when the sliders are changed. ARK does.
This isn't just luck, APB had to be very well thought out in order to ensure a lack of distortion. Now add this same system to nearly every single piece of clothing, and on top of that add a layering system to the clothing. The clothing underneath has to be scaled to fit under the clothing above without clipping. NOW add decals on top of everything and make sure THEY don't get distorted.
All of this is fine and dandy, but now make sure that the changes don't mess with animations. Now optimise that whole mess, and make it understandable in the future.

Just because a game is old doesn't mean it isn't complicated.

But thats the plan all along... when "new" engine finally comes, it'll be right about the time they can announce next engine upgrade and keep us sucking the feminine feature' of APB for another 5 years! ;)

Being online doesn't mean you're suddenly not responsible for who you are. Embarrassing, threatening, harassing, attacking and insulting - based on gender, race, nationality or simple difference of opinion? ...This shows who you are as a person, sitting behind the monitor. You think nobody will care? Think again.

That would take MUCH longer than upgrading to a newer engine.

To be honest, just forget the whole Engine Upgrade thing. It's like for the Early Access scam, you should buy a game not because of its promises, but for what it can offer already.

 

The EU won't change anything about APB. Play it while you still can, you never know how bad it will get in future. If you don't like it already, well... Why are you wasting time around here?

In my understanding the engine was going according to a plan, but the fuzzy bunnyes got greedy at some point wanting to release the game on the consoles.

It gosh darned us completely. because the enclosure states that the consoles got priority over PC for marketing reasons most likely.

The time to complete such a task is obviously much longer, not to mention that after Xbox's joke, Sony ain't giving green light for APB considering how mommyty and unplayable it is.

 

I would really love to see the actual amount of online people on the consoles to laugh in your faces G1 because of how much you sacrificed to make this crap.

Judging by Xbox APB and how poorly game is optimized since 2013 .... I hope we will never see this engine update. Why ? because i doubt that game will work smooth and better after this update, i bet if we will get engine update ppl. who need advanced launcher right now, wont be able to play at all and ppl. who don't have i7 intel or just playing on mini settings wont be able to play without advanced launcher.
